of communism substantiated then by the evil empire of the soviet union and the west, in his purgatory letter to his children, which had been mentioned already, chambers said that in communism he saw the concentrated evil of our time. now, he looked with kindred eyes upon the enormity of communism. indeed, conservatives of all stripes could agree about that hideous this of the communist system, which is why the world of the cold war was, in many ways, a tidier, more manichean world than the one that we inhabit. whatever else might be said about it, the soviet union provided a sort of negative rallying point, something that conservatives of all sorts could define themselves against, and i wonder about today, what about today, how do conservatives to find themselves. well, that is a question that i hope the panel is going to conjure with. before i turn things over to them, i want to make just briefly to final points. one of which is -- has been raised a couple of times. if conservatives were virtually at one in regarding the freedom biking etiology of parmesan with repugnance, they were not, i
washington isn't talking about jobs. >> and i think one reason for this is the decline of labor unions. it used to be that when the union movement was much bigger and more powerful, and especially when private sector workers dominated the union movement, the afl-cio sort of looked out for the working class. they looked out for all workers, not just union workers. they understood that a healthy working class having lots of jobs was ultimately to the benefit of their members. and i think the decline in power of the unions and now and the fact that public sector unions now dominate the afl-cio is a key reason for that. the other thing is kind of a dirty secret, which you may not agree with is that fundamentally barack obama's pretty conservative. he really is. he's an eisenhower conservative. he's not a liberal. i mean, he's -- and i think that's one of the problems with the democratic party is they're looking for leadership to a guy on an issue like why aren't we creating jobs? why isn't there more aggregate demand in the economy? and it's because their guy doesn't really want it. >> i a

union meant that the future of communism is decided, i think, however long it takes, it will collapse in china too. i believe, yet his tragic sense of life would have kept him from being poly anish about western civilization. human societies like human beings live by faith and die when faith dies, he wrote. certainly, in europe he would see that faith dying. similarly, he would have watched faith in that case, in communism, die in the ussr, and we are seeing faith in communism die in china. would he see faith dying slowly now in our own country, while yet it burns so brightly in so much of the muslim world, or would he see the extraordinary expansion in africa, latin america, or evangelicalism in our own country as a sign today of new hope? i leave you that for the discussion period. thank you.

worked with the zone down near union square is not served. one the pharmacies down there has been very diligently buying back in-store and then trying to solve the problem. and they got a backroom that is full of stuff and then there are ants and rats and it's a real problem. so that is not the solution. and i think we need some time to figure out a rejiggering of what was a system from 20 or so years ago that needs to be updated. i appreciate your commission's thoughts on that coming up with the answers that work. >> in some ways scavenging helps to solve the problem, taking a distributive issue and providing someone motivation to seek out a less concentrated footprint of redemption centers. >> it does. it does. i this we're at some kind of weird critical point where there is just too few. economic conditions have certainly driven the current situation. there were, when i started doing this, there might have been one person going around and poking through cans and now three or four times in a given evening different sets of folks will pass by. and so it's something that we have to
are safe and they're screened carefully, the european union did this, at least there's movement in that direction, the united states has not yet done this. so, the law that currently regulates chemicals was passed two years after i was born and i'm sorry but i think a lot has changed in the world about what we know about chemicals and what chemicals are used in the duration of most of my lifetime so we could change the laws so that new knowledge is integrated in how we screen chemicals for safety. today we think about 84 thousand chemicals are out there and about 1 thousand more are added each year and most of these, we don't have any human health data for, 90%, no human health data at all and hundreds of these are in our bodies, we know from studies, so we need to pass comprehensive legislation, a couple of weeks ago, tony testified in front of the environment and public works committee on why we need to pass and get the safe cosmetics out there on the floor of that senate, he did a fantastic job and i stole this off the video which is archiving, you can watch it, and this act

too late. i don't know if you all know in your districts, my office down at transport workers union is in receipt of a letter from the agency, the sf mt agency that they're going to cut office over the holiday weekend, not knowing -- i'm pretty sure you don't know about this. >> president chiu: is this comment relevant to this appeal? >> yes. >> president chiu: okay. thank you. next speaker. and if i could ask folks again, your comments during this comment period, is on this appeal. >> hello. i'm dan coolly, and i am concerned that there is no environmental impact report associated with this major change to the city's traffic flow, major change to pedestrians, major change to folks that will be in wheelchairs, attempting to access, major change to neighbors that are trying to park their vehicles in t
either -- when we approved the original central subway. i know that the union square merchants had a lot of concerns going in and your team has worked incredibly hard to mitigate the concerns to the merchants and the shoppers and the people passing through that stockton street utility relocation work. do you anticipate that the construction, if it happened on columbus ave., would be more impactful than that one? or will you have ways that you can mitigate that construction site as well? because i'm hearing a lot of concerns about dust and noise. i have walked by the stockton street when it's going on on a regular basis and it doesn't seem to be that bad in terms of dust and noise, for the most part. but could you maybe talk about what can be done to mitigate the construction on columbus similar to what's been done to mitigate it on stockton? >> director brinkman, the proposed construction work or retrieval shaft on columbus is quite a bit less in terms of scope than the work at any of the other three sites along the central subway. the mitigation measures that we've successfully deployed
attack by al qaeda. one of the things we've seen already in the european union is suspect of al qaeda starting fires in the eu if that happened in california in the right weather conditions, it would be disasterous and everybody in this room would likely be involved. but to go back, it's all -- for me it's all about relationships, it's all about communication and respecting each other's mission. we certainly appreciate our relationships with all 3 agencies up here. the last thing i would say with respect to technology, one of the things as a command and control tool that cal fire is experimenting with is a program that dhs science and technology created and if you are ready to write it down, you can look online, you can google it, it's called the next generation incident command system or nics. it's a command and control web-based tool that we're looking with mit lincoln labs and dss and i would foresee when we stand up our wing operation center at miramar that the marine corps liaison and the navy liaison and if need be the guard liaison would have access to that tool. the next g
that was raised earlier today by director brinkman, and that is comparing union square with north beach. i think the difference only there is the businesses there are very largement many of them are chains that have support and finance from their chinese. so, the people in north beach, the businesses in particular, are much more concerned about the possible effects in their neighborhood. and, of course, we're not scheduled for a subway stop. that's another difference. >> thank you, mr. bruno. thank you for your time. next speaker. >>> [speaker not understood] more land, graziano [speaker not understood], [speaker not understood]. >> good afternoon. >>> good afternoon, director rifkin and fellow board members. i'm currently the president of russian hill neighbors, and we represent over 600 households and merchants. and at our recent meeting that ended at 9 o'clock last night, our board of directors with 30 people -- we have a very large board of directors -- unanimously voted to support option 4 at the pagoda theater. it is rare that 30 people agree, especially the 30 people with whom i'm involve

. the french and the british have coalitions. the european union also did the same. we're way behind. second recommendation is, this has been going on for too long. although sometimes the arguments of we do not know the bad guys and good guys, i do not buy that. i do not buy that. there is a process. the prominent state sometimes are in contact with the military council and it designated a group today as a terrorist organization. so they know who was good and bad. the need to engage the situation where proactively, otherwise this terrorist organization will continue, and then i do not know what syria will look like a few months from now. unless you engage, even if you do not know the good guys from bad guys, you need to start somewhere. you need to engage the situation. unless you do this, you will have less influence going forward. in gauge the situation, the proactive about what is happening, and during that before it is too late. whether or not the u.s. helps with that will determine what sort of relationship that syria will have in the future. take a one quick point, washington thinks i
